CARLSBAD, Calif. (Jan. 31, 2006) -- You really can play like the pros. On selected Tuesdays from March through June, the world-famous La Costa Resort and Spa will offer its popular "Play Like The Pros" package, scheduling play on the prestigious 18-hole composite layout used for competition in the annual Accenture Match Play Championship.
These are the only dates of the year that La Costa, part of the family of KSL Resorts destinations, combines holes from its celebrated North and South courses specifically to recreate the world tour players' challenge for everyday golfers. "Play Like the Pros" available dates are: March 7, 14, April 4, 18, 25, May 2 and June 27.
"Our guests who play the composite course really enjoy playing and visualizing the same shots that the tour professionals faced only a few weeks before," said Desi Howe, La Costa's director of golf. "It's a great way to make a personal connection to the history and tradition La Costa has enjoyed with the best players in the world, dating back to the 1960s."
This is the third year La Costa has presented its "Play Like The Pros" package, which has received extremely positive response since 2004. Throughout the eight scheduled weeks, many of the holes are maintained to tour-quality specifications required for the matches, which this year return to La Costa on Feb. 22-26.
The "Play Like The Pros Package" is $225 per player, or $200 for a resort guest. Overnight packages are available as well. For tee times call (800) 854-5000 or (760) 438-9111.
